Ohio: Edmund Fitzgerald Porter

Brewer: Great Lakes Brewing

Style: American Porter

For more than a quarter-century, Cleveland's Great Lakes has set a high standard for midwestern beer. The very best, though, might be the roasty, bittersweet Edmund Fitzgerald, named after a legendary shipwreck in Lake Superior. "Our winters are long, and this one is great to sip on during those slow, cold days," explains John Lane, founder of Ohio's Winking Lizard chain of beer bars.
